Brand new Britain's Got Talent judges confirmed

Wednesday December 15, 2010

They might seem like an unlikely pairing. But David Hasselhoff and comedian Michael McIntyre are teaming up as judges on Britain's Got Talent.

ITV have revealed that the pair will join Amanda Holden when the talent show begins again next year.

They will be taking the place of Piers Morgan, who has landed a primetime US chatshow, and Simon Cowell, who will now only appear in the live shows.

Ant and Dec will be returning as the programme's presenters.

"I'm a massive fan of Britain's Got Talent and am extremely excited to be a judge on the new series," Michael, 34, said of the new job.

"I was so thrilled when Simon Cowell asked me that I immediately wanted to run in to Ant and Dec's arms to celebrate."

David, 58, currently starring in a Peter Pan panto, has previously worked as a judge on America's Got Talent.
